Thanks so much for you quick response to my queries. I was aware of the tipping charges but a bit disappointed it will cost to have a drink in the stateroom and you wont be able to pour your own!
How much is a bottle of medium sweet wine, do you know?
I'll be posting more queries prior to going re shore excursions. Neither the USA nor UK NCL sites have excursions for the Dream on this particular cruise - think it must be fairly new. The Star and Sun concentrate on week long tours of Alaska but the Dream is a 13 day holiday and obviously calls at other ports. I visited my travel agent today and enquiries revealed the shore excursion list for this cruise is not ready for posting yet. The agent will obtain a copy for me as soon as ready and, in the meantime, I will keep checking the two sites.
